• dumb money (2023) - watched this on the plane. if you remember this time, it was bonkers and kind of beautiful at the same time. (4/5)
  • the gentlemen (2019) - watched this in the plane, guy ritchie definitely has a style. fun, solid cast, a couple of novel twists. (3.5/5)
  • please don’t destroy: the treasure of foggy mountain (2023) - watched this on peacock. i fell asleep through a chunk of it. i honestly couldn’t tell you the plot. i’m mostly just noting it here so i don’t subject myself to this again.
  • jules (2023) - is this a movie about an alien or getting old? kind of thin, kind of amusing. i’m not sure it was worth the $5.99 we paid to rent it.
  • 3000 years of longing (2022) - i’ll admit, i’m a bit of a tilda swinton fan. this was clever, fun and didn’t leave you waiting for it to pick up at any time. definitely recommended.
  • freelance (2023) - when you’ve seen pretty much everything in the delta lineup that you can stomach already. well, you’ll watch this. it was amusing.


or whatever we’re calling episodic streaming these days. likely with misc. other stuff thrown in.

  • monarch: legacy of monsters (apple tv+)

    solid, i’m honestly curious to see where this goes.

    update: not far.

  • slow horses: season 3 (apple tv+)

    it’s pretty rare for a series to get better as it goes along. this has been so much fun.

  • ricky gervais, armageddon (netflix)

    meh. there were a few nuggets in there. clearly he’s riffing on the whole woke thing here. some of this was clearly pretty half-baked and one has to assume that he’s sanded things down before he get out there on tour with this content.

  • true detective: season 4 (max)

    2 episodes in, totally hooked. will savor this one week-by-week. which, by the way is kind of a stroke of genius on the part of max (nee HBO), i’m going to have to pay for a few months of this service, full stop.

  • wednesday (netflix)

    amusing and well written.

  • house of the dragon (max)

    i started this coming back from NANOG90 on the plane. i’ll probably keep at it on future flights. can’t say i’m sucked in. but it’s pretty solid entertainment.

  • northern exposure (the 1990s)

    this is a bit of a reset. 1990s TV is kind of slow TV. i have to admit, i’m kind of sucked in. the acting’s not that great, the writing’s kind of slow and the premise is kind of insulting. with all that, they hired actors who looked like they were legitimately from alaska. the story line is kind of slow. i never got to really watch this in the 1990s, i’m seeing it with fresh eyes.
